OK, so we're finally ready to admit that Blu-ray looks like it's here to stay for a while. That doesn't necessarily mean that many people are ready to make a huge investment in a laptop with a Blu-ray player. The good news is, you may not have to worry about that. Budget computer shoppers, take note: if you're looking for an affordable way to get Blu-ray on a laptop, the Core i3-powered Gateway NV5933u is one of the best values around.

Most of the notebooks with 15-inch screens that we’ve seen this year have been priced over $800, so a feature-rich budget entry like the Gateway NV5933u always grabs our eye.
This 15.6-inch notebook offers a strong component mix, good basic performance, and some pleasing features—notably, Blu-ray playback—for a hard-to-beat price.

Gateway's NV5933u takes a typical budget class 15-inch laptop and provides it with a Blu-ray drive to make it the system to have for a high definition multimedia platform for under $650. The Core i3 processor gives it decent performance beyond multimedia. Battery life is fairly limited meaning it can't provide enough running time for longer movie viewing and the display has some narrow viewing angles making it best suited for solo viewing.

Gateway NV5933u review
Source: Engadget English
The Gateway NV spits in the face of the $600 to $800 thin and light ULV laptops when it comes to power and HD prowess, though it does sacrifice battery life and thinness for that muscle. While other comparably priced 15.6-inch Core i3 laptops -- like the $650 Sony VAIO VPCEB11FM and $700 HP Pavilion dv6 -- may have more comfortable mouse buttons and keyboards, they don't include Blu-ray drives. So, we say this with absolutely no hesitation: if you are looking for a sub-$650 system that can handle your work and HD multimedia without making you wait around for things to load, the Gateway NV5933u is an absolute no-brainer.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
